Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Mammut added a rubber internal gate to the Element Smart HMS Carabiner to keep the orientation correct so you never look down and see in horror that you've cross-loaded your carabiner. Such an act greatly decreases your carabiners strength, so it's a good thing that it'll never happen with this 'biner. Plus, the Element Smart includes a twist-lock gate and snag-free keylock nose to make it quick and easy to use.

Two thumbs up

Excellent carabiner. No cross loading and twist-lock gate makes sure your climber is always safe.

Great Belay Carabiner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This biner is great for belaying! It has a very easy-to-use auto-locking feature, as well as a swing gate that keeps it from crossloading during use. Though I have disliked a lot of auto-lockers in the past (because of being too sticky and hard to open), this one is great; it has a very smooth action and doesn't snap closed too aggressively. If you're looking for an awesome belay biner, this is it!

Hey Christine,

How is this belay device for rappelling?

This Biner is Perfect.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Yep--I got this biner for belaying. And it's perfect for that. I hated having to constantly check my belay device biner for crossloading, etc... and now that I have this biner, I never have to. All moving parts have smooth action, and the entire unit has a very high-quality feel. Plus, it's auto-locking, so you can't forget to close it.
